Leisure Time

Interview with Rhett and Stewart

JM: What types of facilities were available to help pass the time?
Rhett: Nothing in there but a toliet and a bench.
Stewart: Only once during the month I was there were we allowed to go in the wrec center. Other than that we all stayed in the pod the whole entire time the we were serving out sentence. But we did have TV's and books. They also did have separate showers so that was a plus.

JM: Did you have regular access to the entertainment or was competition fierce? Give details.
Rhett: Wasn't always enough room on the bench so you either stood around or sat on the floor.
Stewart: They brought in books for us to read a couple times and it was a pretty decent selection and the books were in good shape. Also we had TV's and we were allowed to watch football on the week ends and we also had an extra hour out on the weekend if there was enough CO's that is.

JM: Did you have a hard time staying in shape while in jail?
Rhett: Wasn't in there long enough.
Stewart: They told us we were not allowed to workout but as long as you don't it in your cell they didn't usually didn't care.

JM: How often did you get to go outside? What did you do outside if you were allowed to? If you were not allowed to go outside what could you do for exercise?
Rhett: N/A
Stewart: I never got to go outside matter of fact I started to forget what the sun looked like to be honest, wasn't the greatest time ever.

JM: Did the jail offer church services? If so, what were they like and when were they held?
Rhett: N/A
Stewart: Yes, they offered Sunday services and Wednesday services only if you applied a few days in advance before the actual date.
